Camas Washington Real Estate - Positive but Mixed Results for April.

Camas Pending Home Sales took a pause, decreasing 34% from March's results however, Active listings dropped by about 8% and the overall volume of distressed properties decreased also!

Earlier this month we've logged into the Camas MLS to identify what direction the real estate market is heading. Here are the key statistics we have to report:

Camas WA Real Estate Market Report, including Camas USA Zip Code 98607 for April 2011 by John Slocum of REMAX Vancouver WA

From this quick look at the home sales action we see 8% fewer Active listings. Additionally, we see the distressed property category moving down levels at just above 25% of the existing inventory. However, the 3rd Party + Pre-Foreclosure Pending Sales took a significant dip, which is something we'll want to watch in the coming months.

The table below shows the RMLS market data for the transactions within the Camas Zip code of 98607.

Hello Sea to Sky, I think many areas of the country are having the same real estate healing experiences.  Some parts look better while others still have pain.
